Nonprofit Formation and Governance

Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, PLC attorneys represent a considerable number of nonprofit entities, including communications-related trade associations. These include several national journalism organizations, over a dozen state broadcast associations, and others in the telecommunications industry.

We can provide a range of services to nonprofits, from creation to operation.

FHH attorneys draft articles of incorporation and bylaws, file required documents with the relevant state authorities and help obtain federal tax exempt status under the proper subsection of Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Once a nonprofit entity is up and running, we help the entity maintain its authority to operate in its home state, take advantage of its federal tax exempt status, and allow it to expand operations into other states. We also assist in the filing of required charitable solicitation registration paperwork. If called upon, we can assist in the conduct of board meetings, and prepare and maintain of all necessary documentation, such as meeting minutes, to facilitate compliance with the various rules and policies applicable to 501(c)(3) entities.
